I Remember Nothing and other reflections – Memories and wisdom from the iconic writer and director – Just 99p 0 comments

In her final book, Nora Ephron reflects on life, growing older, and everything she will and won’t miss. Filled with Nora’s trademark wit, wisdom and warmth.
* No one actually likes to admit they’re old. The most they will cop to is that they’re older. Or oldish.
* Freedom of the press belongs to the man who owns one.
* I have been forgetting things for years-at least since I was in my thirties. I know this because I wrote something about it at the time. I have proof. Of course, I can’t remember exactly where I wrote about it, or when, but I could probably hunt it up if I had to.

Man at the Helm – A wildly comic novel about an attractive divorcée in an English village in the 1970s – Only 99p 0 comments

Not long after her parents’ separation, heralded by an awkward scene involving a wet Daily Telegraph and a pan of cold eggs, nine-year-old Lizzie Vogel, her sister and little brother and their now divorcée mother are packed off to a small, slightly hostile village in the English countryside. Their mother is all alone, only thirty-one years of age, with three young children and a Labrador. It is no wonder, when you put it like that, that she becomes a menace and a drunk. And a playwright.
Worried about the bad playwriting – though more about becoming wards of court and being sent to the infamous Crescent Home for Children – Lizzie and her sister decide to contact, by letter, suitable men in the area. In order to stave off the local social worker they urgently need to find a new Man at the Helm.

Ronan Keating is a very real idol. In a life-story that received extensive press and ecstatic reviews as ‘a classic – honest, funny and gripping’, Ronan Keating tells the full story of his incredible journey. He may be only 23 but he has lived an extraordinary life so far, from playing football on a housing estate in North Dublin to headlining Madison Square Garden with Elton John.
But Ronan has never forgotten it’s his fans that got him there. It’s an inspirational story of a boy from modest beginnings who confounded the critics and made his mark with talent, boyish good looks and, above all, an integrity that has helped him move from the teen market to a broader, adult audience.
In a surprisingly honest, remarkably frank style he talks openly of his background and his beloved mother, Boyzone’s extraordinary catapult to fame, his friends and band-mates and his new solo career and his wife and son. Brimming with anecdote and revelation, this is a brilliantly written book by a true star – Ronan. Buy this memoir today for only 49p.
